VOX AC30 Overview

The VOX AC30CH is an amplifier head designed for electric guitars and provides that classic British tone used from everyone from the Beatles to Radiohead. With a full tube complement including 4 EL84 power tubes, the AC30 operates at 30W and is capable of achieving bell-like, chiming timbres or lively, creamy overdrives.

Yes, some variation of the VOX AC30 has been out for a while, so what makes this iteration of the product different? One key answer to this question would be the Reactive Attenuator, available on the rear of the unit. It allows you to achieve the exact tone you want out of any corresponding cabinet—even at the low levels necessary for playing in domiciles or small venues. It effectively reduces the wattage, giving you the ability to attain that creamy, overdriven sound regardless of the spatial situation.

The amplifier provides two channels, one of which offers controls for volume, treble, and bass. Both channels feed the tremolo, reverb, and master section; this master section gives you a tone cut knob for overall timbre shaping, and a master volume controller. Each channel is fed by two 1/4" instrument jacks, one for low-level guitars and the other for higher-outputting axes, such as those with active pickups.

The AC30CH head sports two 1/4" speaker jacks, as well as a switchable effects loop and an input for the separately available VFS2 footswitch. You can select between 8 and 16 Ohms to meet the needs of numerous cabinets.
